Corwin Ericson's debut novel offers many delights. One is watching Orange get subjected to all manner of abuse, including a simulated deep-sea dive, dirty restaurant work, numerous occasions where he falls overboard, wearing other people's clothing, getting abducted by a sexy/angry woman, and meeting his greatest fear headlong—having to swim half-naked in pond filled with vampiric lampreys (eel-like creatures). For Orange, even a jaunt in the sauna with naked ladies or a BBQ with Koreans can transform into roguishly painful event.
